Hack: Canon 5D x 1908 Camera Lens

Goofy profile. Gorgeous pics.

New York DP and Photographer Timur Civan, with help from his “Russian lens technician”, took a circa 1908 (possibly earlier) Wollensak 35mm F5.0 Cine-Velostigmat hand-cranked cinema camera lens and grafted it onto a Canon 5D Mark II.

(*For the less geeky, the 5D’s a seriously kick-ass digital cam that shoots still and video and full HD*)

(Thanks, Dylan)
